Butcher Bust in Beijing
This blog has posted a number of articles about crackdowns on "black dens" that butcher and sell meat from sick pigs. Last November a "black den" was discovered right in Beijing's Haidian District, showing that it is not a phenomenon restricted to small cities and rural areas. This one also includes lots of photos.
The operator of the "black den" allegedly bought dead pigs for several yuan, butchered them and sold the meat to pork vendors, small restaurants and a few meat shops.
